If there’s one thing that a year of chat about social distancing, isolation and lock-downs has taught us, it’s that contact is key. We are social beings and we need to be together - not just via Zoom - to feel human.
HI-SO Rooftop Bar
Dirty Little Secret
6 Poplar Street, Christchurch Central
In the Christchurch area we’d be at Dux Central where live music is at the heart of what they do.
There’s a plethora of dance venues in between our most populated cities and each deserve to be frequented for your dose of endorphine-inducing exercise. At the end of the day, that’s what a night out dancing is, it’s exercise and it’s good for us. It has been found to be not only physically beneficial for our health but mentally as well. So it should be enjoyed as a guilt free, self-care necessity.
We have enjoyed a globalised world for so long, with the possibility of a jaunt overseas always at our fingertips. That seems to have come to a grinding halt, for now at least. And while it has, we should show our solidarity with our overseas counterparts, the ones that are dancing in their lounge rooms and kitchens, the ones who can only imagine what it would be like to pack out a dance floor. We owe it to them to get out and cut loose as often as we can because in these uncertain times (yes uncertain, I’m not sure it’s been said enough lately?) it’s hard to know when the supply might be cut off again.
So lets gallivant, lets make hey while the sun doth go down at night and lets connect with the ones we love the best and those we don’t even know yet on any dance floor we can!
